I've been trying to get back into shape for a while now, I'm not really sure why, maybe because I'm so bored. Anyway, I've been running a lot. I started maybe six or seven weeks ago, and back then I couldn't even run a mile non-stop! The first mile I ran, I had a time of 12 minutes and 52 seconds. Not very good at all. The next mile I ran, I made it in 10 minutes and 37 seconds! Then I wanted to run two miles, and made it in 23 minutes and 22 seconds. The last mile I ran, I got a time of 8 minutes and 35 seconds, and yesterday I ran three miles without stopping or walking! I really tried to get a decent time when I had to run the mile in high school, but I never seemed to make it under 12 minutes, I wonder why I can do it now. It's weird though, after about the first five minutes of running I can't feel my legs anymore, and they don't even hurt afterwards. Last night, my sister showed me this hilarious video of a treadmill marathon by Tosh.0. I don't think I can ever run a marathon.
The job search isn't going so well. I've expanded to other states, yet I still haven't heard back from anywhere. I'm going to start applying to local stores and hopefully I get a job so I can start paying off my student loans. Right now I'm making a little money babysitting with my friends. I also did some work for my dad's boss, cleaning his house in Santa Cruz. Apparently no one had been there in over a year. It was a really nice house, right next to the beach, with a beautiful view of the ocean. Took the entire day to clean it though, so I didn't get to go down to the beach. Oh well, I earned a little bit of money working, and that's what I was there for.
A few weeks ago I got to play trampoline dodgeball. It was very fun, and very exhausting. We only played for an hour and afterwards, it felt weird to walk around on the ground. What wasn't so fun was the fact that one of the people that works at that place stayed with us the whole time and was always calling people out when they really weren't. He also yelled at me for kicking the ball. I also got to play disc golf for the first time in at least seven years. I wasn't very good at it though, and for some reason, every time I threw my disc, it went straight for this one guy. I felt kind of bad, but at one point I told him to just go stand by the basket to see if I could actually make it over there. Everyone laughed at that, but I was serious. We also played hot lava monster, at 1 in the morning...in Stockton. What were we thinking? Fortunately no one gave us any problems, and we only got beat up by the playground. I must've had five new bruises from that night, not to mention my arms and back were sore from swinging around on the bars. This one guy sliced his toe open, it looked really bad. That was when we stopped playing.
I haven't been playing many video games lately. Actually, I've been thinking of playing all the Parasite Eve games now that I've got 'em all. I've also really wanted to play Chrono Cross and Final Fantasy VIII again. Of course, maybe I should finish Chrono Trigger before I get back into Chrono Cross. I also have Dante's Inferno and Enslaved to play. Although, I don't really care much for the characters in Enslaved right now, so I haven't felt like playing that game. I'll have to beat it eventually, my brother said it was really good.
Last, but not least, we finally got a pool! It's the first pool my family has ever had that wasn't a radiator cleaning tank, plastic tub, or a tarp with the ends tied up. It's an actual pool! Only 15 feet wide and 42 inches deep, so I can't really do much swimming, but we have a pool! And it's going to be in the mid 90's most of the weekend and next week, perfect weather for hanging out in the pool.
